Lost Dog at Lakeside Super One

Dog lost or abandoned at Lakeside Super One

This dog was lost or abandoned at the Lakeside Super One. I was told he jumped out of a pickup truck and the truck took off. Not sure if they knew the dog had jumped out or if it was intentional. It’s a youngish fixed male, perhaps chocolate lab or chocolate lab pit bull mix. Very very friendly and sweet dog. This happened Sunday morning, June 19.

ps, he's being taken care of by staff and may eventually end up at the animal shelter off the freeway.  They also tried Animal Allies but they're closed on Sunday it seems.

This is my dog!!! Thank you sooo much for taking care of him!!! He escaped from our house this morning! (My girls opened the door, and he snuck out! They have been crying and sad ever since 9:30 this morning without our crazy dog. 

I have contacted Super One, and am getting things worked out to get him back!

Thank you for being so generous and kind to our sweet dog, Marley!

Marley is a very friendly and loving dog! It was very nice to make his acquaitance.  Super One staff must have gotten the story wrong, but they took good care of him and while I was there it was obvious that Marley was the center of attention!

Now if only the dog that's lost in the East Hillside can find its way home.

Now, if anyone finds a crazy friendly Golden Retriever with a tell tale cowlick let me know.  No, she's not lost, she's right here.  But, if for some reason she gets away, use PDD to let me know!

The Super One is actually much closer to Lester Park than Lakeside.

But it's in Lakeside. It's referred to as "Lakeside" Super One.

Zra is right ...



... however, the city refers to the neighborhood as "Lakeside - Lester Park." 



But hyphenated names are annoying, so I think most people consider Lester Park to be a park within the Lakeside neighborhood.

Of course, I'm from West Duluth, so what the hell do I know?

I just refer to it as "the grocery store that often doesn't have the most basic of items."

The city of Duluth web site has something about the Lakeside land company creating Lester Park on the edge of Lakeside. Interesting. Why is there a Lester Park school and a former Lester Park branch Library? I guess I need to do more research about the area.

Sorry, I am nit-picking about the area. From what I understand, back before the area was annexed by the city of Duluth, there were two distinct and separate communities. Lakeside and Lester Park.

Lakeside runs from approximately 40th - 50th avenues east and Lester Park is from 50th - 60th. The area has sort of morphed into one community commonly called Lakeside.

Although, I do think it is odd to call the Super One the Lakeside Super One, given that it is a block and a half or so from the Lester River and the actual park called Lester Park.

Since Lakeside history came up a year and a half ago in a comment to another post I can provide some info via copy/paste:

The Lakeside area was originally named Belville for J.B. Bell. Bell finished building a cabin there that had been abandoned by three men who stopped building it when they didn't have enough food for lunch one day. Belville was platted by a group of investors connected with Jay Cooke's overseas operations. Hugh McCulloch, a former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, was the group's leader. He platted and named many of the area's streets, including McCulloch Street, of course. Local interests bought out the investment group and organized the Lakeside Land Co. in 1886. In 1888, the neighborhood had 12 houses. The following year, it had 74. In 1889, 185 villagers voted unanimously to incorporate their village. The area became known as New London, and later, Lakeside. Lakeside became a city in 1891. It joined Duluth in 1893 on one condition: the neighborhood was to be kept dry. There has never been a liquor establishment of any kind in Lakeside. It is the only neighborhood in Duluth with that restriction. A 2008 advisory referendum to repeal the ban on alcohol sales favored (by one vote!) maintaining the restriction.

Also, I'm told Lester Park and Lester River get their name from an early settler who lived there. I can't substantiate that, but maybe someone else can.

In Woodbridge and Pardee's history of duluth tome, Reverend John M. Barnett is quoted as follows: 

I left in 1861 and at that time Duluth was quite a village. The portion of the city now called Lester Park had been homesteaded by a man after whom the park was called. There were a number of gardens and the settlers were growing vegetables of nearly every kind.
In Upham's Minnesota Place Names, he also says it was named for "a pioneer." The river is also called Busabika zibi by the Ojibwe, which means "Rocky Canyon River, or the river that comes through a worn hollow place in the rock." The park itself was originally called Stearns Park. In the Woodbridge book, there's also an anecdote about Jay Cooke regarding the Lester River. He was talking to early settler Luke Marvin, who was just a boy at the time.
While we were walking along he put his hand in the pocket of his coat and pulled out some fishhooks. "Do you ever fish?" he asked, and then laughed. "That's a foolish question to ask," he said. "Who ever heard of a boy that didn't fish?" Then he gave me the fishhooks and continued: 'I'm going to give you another piece of advice. Don't go fishing in Lester river, because there are no fish there. I know, because I fished there for two or three hours and never got a bite.

Funnily enough, both Chester Park and Lester Park are named for early homesteaders who come down to us only as last names, without any other reference to their full names or who they were. 

I always chuckle though, at the fact that Chester was counted in the original Duluth census with his "reputed wife."

I double checked and I was wrong -- it was actually Charles Chester -- but we know nothing else about him except that crack about his wife.

"reputed"

"so-called."

How does all of this work with the liquor ban?  Would it be possible to open a bar or liquor store in the Lester Park portion?  Perhaps right on the border?

Paul Lundgren

about 8 years ago

The closest a liquor store could be located to Lakeside would have to be west of 40th Avenue East, east of Occidental Boulevard or north of Martin Road and Amity Creek -- unless someone wanted to float one on Lake Superior, which raises new questions.

Looking at the map closer, it turns out the Lakeside border on the east is Occidental Boulevard, which means most of Lester Park is actually in the North Shore neighborhood. 

Lester Park's border (the park, that is; not to be confused with the notion that it's a neighborhood) runs along Amity Creek in some places and Occidental Boulevard in others.

So when you drive on Occidental Boulevard you are always on the Lakeside border with the North Shore neighborhood, but you go in and out of the park.

Of course, that's if I'm reading my maps correctly -- and maps have been known to be wrong almost as often as I have.

And here's an 1890 advertisement for the Lakeside Land Co. that PDD's Fairy Research Spy turned up:

Glad I stumbled upon this extremely historical entry. I live one block away from the Super One (toward town), and it is considered the 2nd Lester Park addition (to Lakeside, I'm assuming). People do call it Lester Park out here, and consider "Lakeside" to be closer to town. 

I have never been able to find out the source for the name "Lester Park," but I have had a sneaking suspicion for quite a while that the name comes from the French "L'est," meaning "the east," because it is the easternmost park in the city. I have no data for this, though.

I started digging around on the County's site because I live close to Lester Park School and seem to remember seeing Lester Park in my parcel description.  I ran across this map instead.  Is this for a planned neighborhood east of the river that never happened?  I thought it was intriguing.

I don't know what it's like in other places, but there are lots of neighborhoods in Duluth that were platted but never happened. Hunters Park, which I'm very familiar with, is just this way, with streets that, if they ever existed at all, certainly don't exist now. In Morningside, too, you can see streets beyond Everett on the plat maps that were supposed to be built, but either only existed for a few years or never were built. (You can see some of the infrastructure, though, out in the trails in the woods parallel to Everett.) 

Duluth was widely believed, remember, by the owners (real estate moguls etc) to be on its way to becoming as big as Chicago. This is why we have so much fallow green space in the city limits. (I mean aside from the early designated official parks.) Gary was going to rival Gary, Indiana in its scope. There was even going to be a big industrial city across the river near Oliver called Carnegie. 

Plat maps were often about the hopes and dreams of their investors, rather than truth.
